Can anyone tell me about Toll roads when driving from Athens visiting Mycenae, Nafplion, Epidavros, Kardamyli, Olympia etc and back to Athens - Do we need cash, credit cards or in order to pay, and what can we expect in terms of charges for a circular route around the Peloponnese ? We will be getting a road map and taking some back roads at times, but some of the distances to cover will be toll since we only have 7 days. Also are gas stations frequent, any tips would be great!
I’ve never driven on the toll roads down there but the average toll cost across the country is 3 cents a kilometre, which gives you a rough idea.
We’re in the north of Greece at the moment and the toll on the road between Thessaloniki and Kavala was 2.40 per car and we passed through two stations. So under 5 euros in total for 153 km.
As a point of general interest there was a big demonstration in the centre of Kavala on Tuesday to protest the building of a new toll booth just above the city. Obviously a hot issue!
If you just use the michelin trip planner - https://www.viamichelin.com/web/Routes - and put in your various trip segments (i.e. Athens - Nafplio, Nafplio - Kardamyli, etc), michelin will give you several route options & recommend the best or fastest ... plus mileage, driving time, AND cost in tolls & petrol. Genius.
